DAYTIME CONCEALER TRICK

Post + Photography by Amy Nadine, Graphic Design by Eunice Chun

We shared our tried and true concealer method with you a couple of months ago (revisit it here!). But in the daytime when you’re subjected to harsh sunlight, classroom or office lighting (the worst!), you have to go a little more undercover with your camouflage. No prob. Here’s the deal: when you apply concealer directly on your bottom lids or on the under-eye “bags” themselves, it’s more noticeable because that area is raised. But if you only conceal the area just below the bottom lid and bag, leaving them bare, you knock down enough of the heavy part of the darkness to brighten up your eyes without anyone seeing the makeup.

EYE CREAM SECRET

If you have puffy bags under your eyes, where you applied your eye cream might be the culprit! Here’s the deal… eye cream warms up with your body temperature and travels as it seeps into your skin. So if you apply it directly on top of your crow’s feet along your lashlines, it will travel into your eyes and irritate them, causing them to swell and give you extra unwanted baggage.

The good news is, because eye cream travels, just apply it 1/2 inch or so above your upper lashline and below your lower lashline, then while you’re sleeping, it will travel on its own and stop right around your crow’s feet, where you wanted it in the first place! Be sure to use your ring finger to apply it (it’s your weakest finger so you won’t pull too hard) and after making the dots, gently pat them in.
